Ahhhh, what a wonderful trip down "Memory Lane"! I ran across these sets at a hobby shop 350 miles from where I lived as a fluke during a summer vacation. I near cleared out the little stock they had and never did see Armtec stuff around my area. I got a few of these sets, the German tools sets, German machine guns, Jerry can sets and three Czech 38 tank suspension sets. Believe it or not, a quick check of the "old" work bench revealed I still have those suspension sets. As the saying goes "thanks for the memories!"

Cheers,

I actually built the vacform Hetzer. If ever there was an armored vehicle perfect for a vacform model it was the Hetzer. It came with the 38t suspension, a gun barrel and the German tool set.

Though the vacform tracks were a bit much.

I remember ads for these in the old Military Modeling mags of the 70s. I still have some and actually made some moulds and now cast my own when I need them.
